Welcome to Beautement.com
This site includes pages on: published books, traditional boat building, and on family history.
Beautement Books started publishing in 2014. Their second book is a detailed guide (with plans) for building a traditional wooden fishing boat - the river Shannon gandelow. You can buy the book on the Shop Now page.
Our books, both those already published and others being written, are listed on the Events page.
These pages are about work building boats (such as the 15-foot, 4.6 metre, Irish gandelow) and the techniques used to craft and restore traditional boats and ships.
This section provides information about our unusual family name, its origins and history.
